Three notebooks, individual sheets with writings and printed material, and three photographs relating primarily to Arthur Hallam. Those items relating to Arthur are a small booklet listing the boys at Putney School "by A. H. Hallam, one of its members"; a single sheet of Latin verse, "Protesilaus Laodamiae", with 'Hallam' and 'Sent up Decr. 3rd 1823' at top; a small sewn booklet with wrappers containing the manuscript draft of a "Declamation delivered in Trinity College Chapel by A. H. H. Dec. 1830"; three photographs of the house and street in Vienna where Arthur Hallam died.

Two sheets headed "Does the periodical criticism of the present day fulfill its aim?" are possibly by Henry Fitzmaurice Hallam. Also present are a small sewn booklet lacking wrappers, containing the manuscript draft of "Palestine, a Poem by Reginald Heber, Commoner of Brazenose College, Oxford. Printed in the Theatre at Oxford June 15th 1803" and a printed poem, "Salix Babylonica" with its translation "The Weeping Willow of Babylon" dated August 1839 inscribed to M. Pennington from the Earl of Mornington and signed by Wellesley.
